This Time, the Dead Won’t Vote!

The Ministry of the Interior has announced special directives to make sure that the fraud and irregularities of last October’s Municipal Elections, will not be repeated at the re-votes taking place in Beit Shemesh and Nazareth.

The Jerusalem and Supreme courts ordered new elections in Beit Shemesh and Nazareth, overturning the municipal election result of 20th October 2013, due to “widespread and systematic acts of fraud which was intended to change the election results”.

Whereas the ballots are usually supervised by local residents and political parties, in the new elections only government employees “professionals with experience in managing the election process, from outside the city” will be used to supervise the balloting process. Furthermore, the Ministry has ordered massive police presence, to ensure that the new elections will be law-abiding.

Some of the allegations following the previous elections in Beit Shemesh were regarding the supervisors at balloting stations who may have participated in fraud and irregularities, such as by collaborating with the voter-fraud, or taking matters into their own hands by invalidating voting slips for rival candidates.

Furthermore, the Beit Shemesh electoral lists were so inaccurate and out-of-date, that many non-residents and even dead people were still registered as voters – leaving the door wide open for the voter fraud and scams.

Following the last election, residents joked that special arrangements had been made in some balloting stations so that Cohanim had solely voted in the morning, as the dead people were voting in the afternoon.

Eli Cohen, the challenging candidate for mayor, recently announced at a campaign meeting in Beit Shemesh that “this time, the dead won’t vote!”

The Ministry of the Interior seems to agree.

    Well gee, imagine that. Dead people voting. And who was the inventor of that idea if not Chicago's own Saul Alinsky that rabid communist and mentor of Barak Obama who has grave yards voting for the Demon Crats?

  2. Edward Lobel says:

    As usual you are very wrong in you statement! I am a democrat and readily admit that dead people voting started in Chicago but it was a long time before Saul Alinsky lived! If you believe otherwise it just goes to reinforce you ignorance of the facts!
